Melbourne’s Grand Baxter is a playful alt-folk trio, blending the timeless swoon of violin, the gritty heft of electric guitar and the sometimes uncomfortable honesty of Langdon’s songwriting. Inspired by the great songs of James Taylor, Paul Simon and John Moreland, Grand Baxter offers listeners tiny moments of authentic truth, weaved between the bouncing rootsy sounds of folk, and alt-country, all wrapped in great blabs of humour and self-deprecation.
Langdon's awarded songwriting has afforded performances at Port Fairy Folk Festival, The National Folk Festival and Folk Alliance International (USA), awards such as The Push's Artist of the Year and Folk Alliance of Australia's Young Artist of the Year, and countless tours of the country.
2018's Gotta Get on the Road EP offered a rustic country-folk debut, but via recent singles Grand Baxter's sound has journeyed slowly into the softer, more subtle corners of contemporary folk, with 2021's 'Family of Liars' achieving placement on significant streaming playlists and local acclaim.
Grand Baxter's upcoming album 'Silverline' is a reflection on a decade of songwriting, with audible influences from James Taylor, to John Moreland, to Phoebe Bridgers.
